When I went by my normal Dry Cleaners today- they were closed. I waited for over 30 minutes- but by 8:30am (and supposed to open at 7:30am) I figured they were not going to show. I was a bit desperate as I needed my Military ASUs cleaned for a special Casualty Duty. If your military, you may know that Casualty Assistance Officers spend a lot of time in thier uniform the first 10 days of duty, and here I am on day 8, and I had some spills and normal wear. I needed them Dry cleaned by noon. I was figuring I was going to have to go without (I had tried Dryell the night before and it was not strong enough, though it did reduce the spill stains, but still not up to my standards- I would do if I had to).
So I am driving from down Mill Plain looking for cleaners- already been to two places that have said they could not help me. I stopped at Custom Care and told the lady my situation and told her I was willing to pay more. The Lady was receptive, and went to the back to check without turning me away. By now it is 9:10 and I am thinking she is going to come back and say No, but she came back and said 'Yes, we can help you. It will be close, Maybe not by noon, but by 1pm - Is that ok?"" It was!
In fact- My uniform was not only ready by Noon , but they did not charge me any extra for the fast service. Here I am, writing this review at 1:27 (and I do not have to be at my destination till 3:30) with my uniform put together with it's rank, awards, and other items, cleaned, pressed and looking great.
They really did a wonderful job. I wish I could post pictures here. Thanks Custom Care, you are helping this Soldier stand tall and proud tonight in her uniform tonight for a difficult duty. This help eliminates a lot of my stress as I go into this duty knowing that at least I am squared away.
